Visit FlyLady's Website (
Intro taken from their Website:

Are YOU living in CHAOS (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome) like Franny in the pink sweats? Do you feel overwhelmed, overextended, and overdrawn? Hopeless and you don't know where to start? Don't worry friend, we've been there, too.

Step through the door and follow FlyLady as she weaves her way through housecleaning and organizing tips with homespun humor, daily musings about life and love, the Sidetracked Home Executives (SHE™) system, and anything else that is on her mind...

This site helps you organize your household and help you get ride of the guilt you feel when you work at home and you don't take (or don't have) time to clean and do all the household chores.

Fun acronyms they created:

FLY: Finally Loving Yourself
CHAOS: Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome
PODA: Parade of Daily Adventures (To do list)
STUFF: Something That Undermines Family Fun
SHE: Side Tracked Home Executive

They also have Yahoo groups in English and French.

Go ahead, visit the site, your daily schedule will never be the same.
Learn to FLY.

a nice idea, but... Nov 4, 2004

It sounded good to me, too, and I signed up for one of their e-mail lists a while back. I unsubscribed after only a day or two because the e-mails drove me nuts! I seem to remember they were full of things like "jump right up and clean your kitchen sink!"--and way too perky for my taste

Guess I'll have to keep living in CHAOS
